Players waiting to claim the Anemo character Kazuha will be glad to know that a lot of Genshin Impact 2.8 leaks are insinuating a possible Kazuha rerun banner during the update. Data miners and fans came to this conclusion as the spiral abyss buffs, new story quests as well as a new sword, all seem to be inclined upon Kaedehara Kazuha.

It has been more than six months till Kazuha got its rerun in the game. While characters released after Kazuha were seen in the rerun banners in few patches, Kazuha wanters were utterly disappointed by the developers but it seems their wishes are finally going to be fulfilled.

While most of the newly released characters in the game come with their signature weapons, Kazuha, the 5-star Anemo character from Inazuma didn’t really have a signature sword in the game. Even though, players built the character by experimenting with different swords, Anemo mains were ardently waiting to make Kazuha a broken DPS character.

The recent Genshin Impact 2.8 leaks coming from the beta test in China reveal that a new story quest of Kazuha named “Acer Palmatum Chapter: Act I” will give a new ‘unnamed’ sword for free. This sword is actually going to be the signature weapon of Kazuha whose ascension materials also got leaked recently-

  • 9 Masks of the One-Horned
  • 4 Masks of the Kijin

  • 18 Dark Statuettes
  • 27 Deathly Statuettes
  • 10 Spectral Husks
  • 15 Spectral Hearts
  • 18 Spectral Nuclei
  • 150,000 Mora

The stats of the upcoming sword in Genshin Impact 2.8 update are mentioned as follows-

  • Base ATK: 42
  • Secondary Stat: ATK
"When a Normal, Charged or Plunging Attack hits an opponent, it will whip up a Hewing Gale dealing AoE DMG equal to 180% of ATK and increasing ATK by 15% for 8 seconds. This effect can be triggered after every 8 seconds."

It is also rumored that this sword will be given its name at the end of the beta test which means players will be able to know only in when they complete the story quest in Genshin Impact 2.8 update. It is also rumored that Genshin Impact 2.8 update will be stacked with rerun banners which implies that Shikanoin Heizou is likely to appear in the rerun banner of Kazuha.

Kazuha getting his sword will compel players more to pull for the Anemo character as he becomes one of the crucial characters to control the crowd of enemies in the Spiral Abyss. However, it is important to note that this sword cannot be refined unlike other swords.
